1.  How wondrous and great thy works, God of praise!

How just, King of saints, and true are thy ways!

O who shall not fear thee, and honor thy Name?

Thou only art holy, thou only supreme.

2.  To nations long dark thy light shall be shown;

Their worship and vows shall come to thy throne;

Thy truth and thy judgments shall spread all abroad,

Till earth’s every people confess thee their God.
